Picketing In Maryland During Funerals?

Effective October 1, 2011, Maryland has a new law regarding picketing activity at funerals that should be of interest to churches. The law states that a “person may not engage in picketing activity within 500 feet of a funeral, burial, memorial service, or funeral procession that is targeted at one or more persons attending the funeral, burial, memorial services, or funeral procession.”
